Ice Cold!

It’s summertime and the living is….HOT!!! I don’t know about where you are, but here in West Virginia we have had a hot spring and it’s looking to be a hot summer on top of it. I’m ready for ice cold drinks. You? I came up …

It’s summertime and the living is….HOT!!! I don’t know about where you are, but here in West Virginia we have had a hot spring and it’s looking to be a hot summer on top of it. I’m ready for ice cold drinks. You? I came up with this one yesterday, and I’m planning on keeping the fridge stocked with this and anything else ice cold all summer.


How to make Spiced Peach Sun Tea:

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup sliced, crushed peaches
water
tea bags
1 broken cinnamon sticks
several whole cloves

Make a syrup of water, sugar and sliced, crushed peaches in a small pot; boil on high until the sugar is dissolved. Let syrup cool then strain liquid to remove peaches. Meanwhile, prepare sun tea by adding several tea bags (depending on strength desired) to 1/2 gallon water. Place broken cinnamon sticks and cloves in a spice ball (or tie up a small cheesecloth bag) and place in the water with the tea bags along with the peach syrup. When sun tea is ready, remove the spice ball. Chill and pour over ice. Garnish with sliced lemons if desired.

Makes 1/2 gallon of spiced peach tea. (Recipe can be easily doubled, tripled, and so on.)

    This sounds good! And being from the north, I’m wondering how to do it without the sugar, though ūüėČ

    My favorite summer drink is just plain sun tea, but I could expand my horizons and add some flavor!

    When doing sun tea (and I, too, like it without sugar!) we often add a small bag of something like raspberry tea with the large bags of tea. Or add a few sprigs of lemon balm or mint.

    Like CindyP, I’m a Northern girl and I like my tea plain. But, when visiting my brother in Georgia, I get used to the “sweet tea” that is served everywhere. So, I could very well poke a straw through my computer screen right now and drink that icy cold iced tea with no problem. Don’t I wish!

      One way to do this without sugar would be to juice the fruit–I was just thinking about that this morning as I’m juicing a bucket of apricots with my new steam juicer! The juice could easily be added to drinks like tea and there’s no sugar.

    That sounds refreshing and fantastic!
